  1. I accidentally stumbled upon this find on amazon. Its a cordless air compressor with a 5 liter (1.32 gallon) tank. it can run on AC as well as a makita battery. It also comes with 2 adapters to allow it to run on a milwaukee and dewalt battery. Obviously its a knockoff of some sort coming out of a chinese factory but it is appealing. It would be a risk due to being near impossible to get something repaired if it turned out to be a lemon. https://www.amazon.com/TC·BL-Compressor-Dual-purpose-Compatible-Heavy-duty/dp/B089D576B3/ref=asc_df_B089D576B3/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=459587573990&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13035904942155547808&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031561&hvtargid=pla-957842415762&psc=1
  2. New 18v Makita blower. The specs put it a little less powerful than their 36v but pretty close. Makita seems to be getting better at utilizing every bit of energy from their single 18v batteries while maintaining a small size. https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/XBU03Z
  3. Well the DLS714 appears to have a greater crosscut than the LS610. I have the DLS714 and i am still amazed by its power. I have cut through 2" thick walnut slabs with it like they were butter. You can use 7 1/4 blades on it instead of the 7 1/2 for the variety and how cheap they are. You lose a little depth but obviously not much.
  4. I don't have any info other than this picture i found on a Japanese website but this does look promising.

    18v Polisher

    Not sure when this will be available in North America but looks pretty nice.
  6. Heres some new tools on Makita website. 1. 18v Brushless one handed chainsaw 2. 3/4 gallon dust extractor/blower. (been in Europe for a while but new to USA) 3. 18v 16G nailer 4. several 18v blower jackets
  7. Yes I meant "finally in USA". I almost ordered it form Canada a few month back.
  8. The barrel grip jigsaw is finally here in NA. https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/XVJ01Z
  9. I thought this was a neat idea. Its a 4 in 1 drill/Hammer/driver/impact. I don't expect it to be better than any of the single function drills or impacts, but as a all in one that you can throw in a toolbox for maintenance seems like it would work well. https://www.makitatools.com/products/details/XPT02Z
  10. I don't understand why so many people get so worked up over the "20V" name. From what I read it was more to differentiate their newer battery platform form the older 18v system. Since they have such a big presence in Home Depot it causes less confusion when a homeowner is buying a battery. they have a 20v tool and buy the 18v battery then complain when it doesn't fit. Like many things in life things have to be dumbed down to the lowest denominator. You know Milwaukee 12v aren't 12v either, yet I rarely see people complaining about that.
  11. here is a way to make single use bags reusable. Those aren't my pictures but I've done this hack. I use it mostly for saw dust and as long as you wrap the dowel a couple time and clamp it, I dont have any escaping dust. If anything did escape it would be pretty minimal and I would say just add another clip.

  13. Dewalt needs to step up their vacuum game. Cordless vacuums are probably my favorite cordless tools because they are used on the job, at home, camping ect..Dewalts cordless vacuum is outdated, loud, and doesn't have much suction. I thought it was good years ago but not anymore by todays standards.
  14. Did you purchase this off of Ebay? I use to order tools only available in the UK from Toolstop.com but it seems that they don't offer USA delivery anymore.
